Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, April 9, 1888. 5 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen: When asking for the suf- 
frages of the voters of Chicago a year ago, I 
made three promises. 



April 9,]

[1888. 



1. To have the affairs of the city con- 
ducted in a business-like and economical 
manner. . 

2. To supress public gainbling. 

3. To close disreputable saloons. 
Whether these pledges have been fulfilled 

or not the record v/ill disclose; by it I am 
content to stand. 

FINANCIAL. 

The bonded debt of the city, December 
31, 1887, was $12,588,500. Deducting $3,955,- 
000, the amount which is to be paid out of 
the revenues from water, the net debt to 
be paid from taxation is $8,633,500. In ad- 
dition there is an agreement made by the 
preceding administration with the Penn- 
sylvania Railroad Company binding the 
city to pay $30,000 within t\yenty years, 
with interest at 4 per cent, per annum, for 
land necessary to swing the Adams street 
bridge. By the refunding of bonds for 
$344,500 last year, there was a saving in 
interest of $9,736. Provision has been 
made by the Council for the refunding of 
$682,000 in bonds during the current year, 
which will result in a further saving in 
interest of $10,230. 

The receipts were $11,980,935.55, an in- 
crease of $532,694.04 over those of 1886. The 
principal sources of the increase were: 
Fines $27,713, due in great part to the new 
method of conducting business in the police 
courts; licenses, $174,246.95; taxes, $94,488.- 
20; special assessment and deposit fund, 
$103,123.08. 

The expenditures were $11,497,988.24, 
and increase of $466,919.13, which is ac- 
counted for mainly by the addition of 113 
men to the police force, $151,169; payment 
to the gas companies on account of the appro- 
priation of 1886 $284,461.35, a large portion 
of the bills for 1885 being in judgment and 
still unsatisfied; paid for site for new pump- 
ing works $56,076. There was an increase 
of $273,642 in the special assessment and 
deposit fund owing to the greater amount 
of work done, the Mayor having no control 
over this fund except to ratify contracts 
made for streets ordered improved by the 
Council. As an investment for the water 
fund, city bonds for $343,280, bearing four 
per cent, interest, were purchased. 

The probable savings on account of the 
appropriations of 1887 were $150,000, and 
there was nearly $700,000 more in the treas- 
ury at the close of the year than at the end 
of 1886, the present "working capital" being 
the largest in the history of the city. 

HEAIvTII DEPARTMENT. 

The health of the city was uniformly 

food; no epidemic prevailed. The annual 
eath rate is very near the lowest of any 
city of equal population on the globe. This 
is remarkable, taking into consideration 
the natural unsanitary condition of Chi- 
cago, the rapidity of its growth, and the 
inevitable overcrowding of some districts. 
Another fact that increases the death rate 
is found in the census of 1880, which gives 
15 per cent, more children under 5 years of 
age than any other city in tne United 



States having over 200,000 inhabitants, the 
ordinary death rate among children being 
greater than that of an adult population. 
The death rate in American cities of over 
200,000 last year was: New York 26.27 per 
1,000; Boston. 25.18; Brooklyn, 22..5- Phila- 
delphia, 21.9; St. Louis, 21.7; Chicago, 
20.21. 

The substitution of contracts for the per- 
formance of scavenger work commenced 
in May, in place of the employment of 
teams by the day, brought about an im- 
provement in the service, and was the 
means of saving more than $40,000 in the 
annual expense. The improvement, how- 
ever, was not altogether satisfactory, and, 
the Council having concurred in the recom- 
mendation that the city own the teams and 
employ the men, the experiment is to be 
made of cleaning the alleys and removing 
the garbage from the First Ward. If it be 
a success there the same arrangement will 
doubtless be adopted for some of the other 
wards, in order to dissipate existing objec- 
tions to the manner in which this portion 
of the work of the department is done. The 
Commissioner has been directed to gradu- 
ally remove all receptacles for garbage and 
ashes from the streets, and this very desir- 
able result will be hastened as fast as prac- 
ticable. In June, with my approval, the 
Commissioner requested the Council to 
permit the expenditure of $10,000 for the 
construction of a garbage furnace. I was 
much impressed with the importance of 
this as a sanitary measure, and gave it con- 
siderable personal attention, examined the 
various devices in operation at different 
points in this country and Canada, and, in 
my opinion, the plan selected gives the best 
results, all things considered. The furnace 
was completed at a cost slightly greater 
than the sum appropriated, the plans, cast- 
ings, etc., making a first structure more 
expensive than latter constructions of the 
same kind. The work has been done econ- 
omically and well. The preliminary trial 
was a success, and the furnace has met 
every expectation. We may congratulate 
ourselves that Chicago is the first city in 
America to demonstrate the practicability 
of destroying by fire the large daily accu- 
mulations of garbage and rubbish incident 
to a great population. 

The work of the tenement house inspect- 
ors was performed with energy and suc- 
cess. The sanitary supervision of the homes 
and places of labor of wage workers is 
one of the most important duties of the De- 
partment of Health, and a municipal work 
in wliicli I take much interest. The total 
number of examinations made was 81,402 
against 70,384 in 1886. The average number 
of examinations made per week by each in- 
spector was sixty-five— six more than during 
the previous year, while the more import- 
ant improvements of sanitary defects in 
domicile and shop were correspond- 
ingly increased. The value of this service 
to the sanitary intersts of the city will be 
more and more appreciated as its efficiency 
is enhanced by the experience and better 
training of the inspectors.

[1888. 



SCHOOLS. 

At the close of the school .year in June, 
six additional buildings had been opened, 
and since the commencement of the new 
school year in September, five more have 
been added, making ninety-nine owned by 
the city, and four rented— a total of 103, an 
increase of nine over 1886. One other 
building is about completed. 

There are three high schools with 1,829 
scholars; fifty-one gram mar schools with 14, 
838; and twenty-eight primary schools with 
50,501. According to the school census of 
1886 the number of children of school age — 
6 to 16 years — was 129,227. There are now 
probably 140,000. The number of pupils 
enrolled last year was 84,902, an increase of 
only 1,880 over 1886; the average daily 
membership, 67,186; an increase of 1,368; 
and the average daily attendance, 62,744; an 
increase of 1,116. The difference between 
the anticipated enrollment this year — 87,000 
— and the estimated number of children of 
school age is 53,000. Of these about 40,000 
are in parochial and 5,000 in private schools. 
So out of the total of 140,000 less than six 
per cent. — 8,000 — are at home or at work. A 
large portion of these, however, are doubt- 
less getting instruction in rudimentary 
branches either by individual effort or with 
the aid of their parents. Perhaps not over 
2 per cent, of all the children of school age 
in the city are growing up in ignorance. 

The total seating capacity of the schools 
is 82,397, and consequently, 9,696 children 
have to be put in "half day divisions"; in 
other words, can attend school for only a 
half, instead of a whole day; so that 5,000 
pupils now need school accommodations. 
If, however, the accommodations continue 
to increase in the same ratio as during the 
last two or three years, it will not be long- 
before every child enrolled can have a seat 
for a full day. 

The receipts were $2,067,986, of which $1,- 
689,620 were from the school tax fund; $142,- 
079 froni the state dividend; and $222,172 
from rentals, interest, etc. The expendi- 
tures were $2,020,737, the salaries amount- 
ing to $1,236,967, repairs costing $109,053, 
.permanent improvements $75,062, new 
buildings $446,334, evening schools $35,567, 
and furniture $11,881. The rate of the 
scliool tax on the total amount levied 
was $31.85 per $100, or a little less than 
one-third of the whole levy — a decrease of 
$1.39 per $100 from the preceding year. 

The cost of tuition and incidentals per 
capita, based on the average daily member- 
ship, was, in the primary schools, about 
$16.65, in the grammar schpols $28.38, and 
in the high schools $46.81 — an average of 
$20.12 for the entire membership, or $24.82 
including six per cent, on the value of school 
property. 

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC AVOEKS. 

The amount due from all sources for pub- 
lic improvements during the year was $8,- 
131,775, and the balance to the credit of the 
different funds, December 31, $1,447,235. 
The appropriation for department and sew- 



erage purposes, and funds available, aggre- 
gated $1,916,569.33, and the total expendi- 
tures were $1,388,818.13 of which $212,386.72 
were spent prior to April 18th, and $231,- 
573.18 paid on contracts made in 1886 and 
prior years. Contracts for $3,741,900 were 
entered into. 

The Water Department is nearer the peo- 
ple than any other, and an earnest effort 
has been made to facilitate the payment of 
rates, in order to avert the vexatious dglays 
which have characterized the office for 
years past. It is not improbable that the 
Council will be asked to change the periods 
for paymeijt, so that there will be a longer 
time within which they can be made, thus 
preventing the gathering of vast crowds, 
and the consequent detention before reach- 
ing the cashier's desk. The receipts were 
$1,490,000.08, an increase of $115,188.76 over 
1886, while the expenditures, including the 
salaries of the inspectors, shut off men, as- 
sessors, etc., were $122,591.01 against $129,- 
651.41 the previous year. The per cent, of 
cost in 1886 was 9.4, and in 1887 8.2 a reduc- 
tion of 1.2 per cent. The expenses of the 
collection bureau were $58,866.03 against 
$60,955.35, it costing 4.4 per cent, to collect 
the rates in 1886, and 3.9 per cent, in 1887; a 
reduction of one-half per cent. For the first 
time in many years, sworn monthly state- 
ments of tlie receipts and disbursements, as 
required by the ordinance, were made by 
the superintendent, and filed with the 
Comptroller. A new system of book-keep- 
ing has been adopted, and the present man- 
agement is based on business principles. 

A contract was let for a tunnel to extend 
four miles into the lake, with a capacity of 
90,000,000 gallons, and engines that will 
pump 75,000,000 gallons in twenty-four 
hours have been contracted for. A site was 
purchased, and the buildings will be erected 
this year. A great deal of money had been 
wasted at the water works. The methods 
were very unbusinesslike, and, evidently, 
very little care was exercised or interest 
manifested by the employes. A radical 
change had to be made, and the effect is al- 
ready apparent. It was necessary to employ 
a competent mechanical engineer to have 
charge of the works, and you are referred 
to his report for many startling facts. His 
discoveries within a week after his appoint- 
ment were worth to the city more than his 
salary. With his experience and ability to 
suggest and superintend, there is no doubt 
that in time Chicago will have the largest 
and best water-pumping plant in the world. 

The last administration, in its anxiety to 
make elaborate exhibits, left a debt of over 
$250,000 for the paviijg of street intersec- 
tions. This was an embarrassment, since 
it had limited the appropriation for this 
purpose in 1887. However, the Commis- 
sioner managed admirably, securing favor- 
able bids by insisting upon the widest com- 
petition, and was able to pave twenty-nine 
and a quarter miles of streets, repave 
seven and a half miles, and plank one and 
a half miles. In addition, the street railway 
companies paved 91,571 square yards bet- 
ween their tracks. There are now 306

miles of paved streets in the city, against 
277% last year. There were constructed 
forty-two and a half ndles of new sidewalks, 
over 127 miles were rebuilt, and thirty-six 
and a halt miles repaired, the total at the 
end of the year being 920 against 878% in 
18Ht). early 8,514 miles of improved streets 
were cleaned, an increase of 191 miles. A 
little over forty-two miles of water pipe 
w^ere laid, against thirty-one miles the pre- 
vious^year, me total now being 638 miles; 
and 549 fire hydrants were added, against 
407, making 5,899 in nse. About seventeen 
miles of brick and pipe sewers, from twelve 
inches to seven and a half feet iik diameter, 
were pnt in; and 8,807 house service pipes 
laid against 8,083, making the aggregate 
115,578. There were 1,542 gas street lamps 
added against 1,417, making the total 17,528; 
and 525 oil lamps against 769, the aggregate 
being 4,573. • The expenditure for lighting 
tlie lamps was $562,493.91— the annual cost 
per gas lamp in the West Division being 
132.40, in the North and South Divisions 
$23.18, and of an oil lamp $21.60. 

The revenue statute should be amended 
so that more money will be available for 
public improvements, as the amount ob- 
tainable under the law as at present is in- 
adequate for this large and growing city. 

The Drainage Commission had to be dis- 
pensed with December 1 from lack of 
funds. All the data collected has been 
preserved, but the result of their labors 
does not seem to me to be an equivalent for 
the expenditure. Very little of the money 
appropriated for this purpose was in hand 
when I came into office. It is hoped that 
at the session of the next General Assembly 
legislation can be procured which will per- 
mit of the prosecution of this much needed 
improvement. The city can well afford to 
bear the expense necessary to perfect a 
drainage system. 

Called upon early to exert the police 
power on the lake front there was no hesi- 
tation in doing my part of the work in the 
endeavor to resist the encroach^nents of the 
Illinois Central Railroad Company. The 
recent decision of the United States Cir- 
cuit Court is very encouraging, and, if cir- 
cumstances demand it, the city must en- 
force and maintain its rights in that locality. 

The Council is urged to give the matter 
of rapid transit special attention, and to 
offer encouragement to all legitimate 
schemes that will increase communication 
with the suburbs. As cable roads will be 
built on the West Side, ample tMnnel facili- 
ties are to be provided for reaching the 
business district. If elevated roads are to 
be constructed, they should be of the best 
designs, and afford the greatest comfort and 
convenience to the public. 
. The agitation of the bridge question early 
in .June resulted in telephonic connection 
between the bridges and a central office, 
and an approach to a system in the move- 
ment of vessels. With the experience of 
last summer it is believed that the des- 
l)atcher will be able during the (toming sea- 
son to so control the river traffic as to pre- 
vent in great part the long and freciuent 



delays at the approaches which prevailed 
previous to the attempt to regulate it. The 
lighting of the river by electricity proved 
such a success that the Council authorized 
the extention of the wires to cover the 
North Branch as far as Fullerton avenue, 
and the South Branch to flalsted street. 
The value of the light to the merchant 
marine will be demonstrated this season. 
As vessels will be able to move with safety 
after dark, much work heretofore done in 
the day will be done at night, and the arri- 
vals and departures between 9 p. in. and 3 
a. m. will lessen the number during day- 
light, thus adding to the relief afforded 
by the day regulations. Over 24,000 vessels 
arrived at and departed from this port last 
year, and more attention should be paid to 
the river, in order that it may be navigable 
at all times and in all places. 

The arrangement made with the Pennsyl- 
vania Railroad Company for viaducts over 
its tracks on Stewart avenue and ap- 
proaches to Jackson street bridge is esti- 
mated to be better by nearly $1,000,000 than 
that provided for in the ordinance prepared 
and presented by my predecessor. The 
Twelft street viaduct west of Clark street 
had been constructed in such a way that 
the city would have been liable for damages 
to the extent of several hundred thous- 
and dollars, but by an agreement with the 
Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad 
Company I was able to avert most of these 
damages, and, by the payment of $20,000, 
the city will get in place of the old viaduct 
a new one to cost over $90,000. The ordi- 
nance of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe 
requires the company to complete this via- 
duct with suitable approaches, and to build 
such other viaducts as may be thought 
necessary by the city authorities, and pay 
all the damages to adjacent property. Ar- 
rangements have been nearly completed 
with the corporations which have tracks on 
Kinzie street, and in the block south to 
Carroll avenue, to construct four viaducts 
during the present year. All the companies 
will be required to put gates at crossings 
where there are no viaducts. So many 
railroads enter Chicago that this question 
is of great importance and must receive i 
careful attention. \ 

POLICE DEPARTMENT. 

While the year 1886 was the most event- 
ful in the history of the Police Department, j 
1887 will be as well remembered on account i 
of the execution of the principal conspira- 
tors who brought about the Rayinarket 1 
tragedy. After the decision of the Supreme I 
Court of the State sustaining the verdict, 
and the highest tribunal . in the land had 
been appealed to in vain to interfere, much 
anxiety was expressed by the press, and 
many citizens anticipated trouble when 
the law was vindicated. The people of the 
country watched to see if the city authori- 
ties would take hold of anarchy with a de- 
termined hand. There was a feeling of in- 
security, and much was expected of the 
department. The day of the execution the 
police were on duty at the jail, amply pre- 



Apfil 9,]

pared to check any attempted interference. 
The peace was preserved, and the force is 
entitled to mncli credit for tlieir fidelity. 
Within the past few months there has been 
considerable criticism, and it was beneficial, 
since it aided in reorganizing and putting 
the department on a more efficient basis. 
It was not deemed prudent to make changes 
until after iSTovember. Some have since 
been made among the officers, and tlie 
drones among the men are being discharged 
upon discovery. The effect is evident in 
improved discipline and better service, and 
the efforts now making in that direction 
will, it is believed, result in a Police De- 
partment the equal, in its line, of the Fire 
Department, which is unquestionably one 
the best anywhere. If in the past officers 
and men have felt constrained to take an 
active part in political matters, they now 
understand that they are to act only as 
policemen, having the free use of their own 
ballots, and giving protection to all who 
wish to exercise the same right. 

During the year twelve policemen died, 
and twenty-seven were seriously injured in 
the discharge of their duties. Fourteen 
officers and thirty-six patrolmen resigned, 
six of the latter under charges; and two 
officers and fifty-six patrolmen were dis- 
charged for cause. The number of days 
pay forfeited for violation of the rules was 
172. The additions to the force to fill 
vacancies, including the IIB appropriated 
for, were 224. At the close of 1887 there 
were ninety-seven officers and 1,048 patrol- 
men. Only 652 of the latter, however, were 
doing patrol duty, twelve of the others 
being disabled, and 396 on permanent posts, 
in the signal service, in plain clothes, or 
specially detailed. The force had not been 
handled so as to do the most effective work. 
One quarter of the patrolmen at stations, or 
162, were on duty during the day, and 
three quarters, or 490, at night. The latter 
returned to the stations at 4 a. m. insummer 
and 8 a.^m. in winter, being relieved by one- 
half of the day squad, who remained on 
beat until 7 a. m. The result was that from 
3 a." m. to 7 a. m. in winter, and 
from 4 a. m. to 7 a. m. in summer 
" there were only eighty-one patrolmen 
on duty in the whole city, and as the 
other half of the day men did not go out 
until 8 a. m., there was not a single patrol- 
man on beat outside of the business district 
from 7 to 8 o'clock. As soon as possible 
after this became known to me, a change 
was made, and, under the present arrange- 
ment, 490 patrolmen are on duty until 4 a. 
m., and 245 until 6, and, after that hour, 80. 
Under the old method there was an average 
of a little over two men to a square mile of 
territory; under the new one there are six. 
The addition of fifty patrolmen, provided 
for in the appropriation bill this year, and 
of some who have been on other duty will 
increase the average to ten, between 4 and 
6 a. m. By a judicious concentration of men 
better protection can be given to life and 
property than before. 

Soon after I took charge of the municipal 
government the police were instructed to 



report the number of public gambling- 
houses in the city. The locations of twenty- 
nine were given, and orders were issued to 
collect evidence against the keepers. This 
required some time. In June testimony 
was available to convict all of them, and 
many of a second or third offense, which 
involved imprisonment in the county jailor 
penitentiary." They were then notified to 
close their places, and keep them closed, 
and, since the middle of June, not a public 
gambling house has been open except spas- 
modically for two or three days. Men are 
specially detailed to hunt for tnem, and, as 
soon as one is discovered, a warrant is 
sworn out and the place raided. None of 
the old houses have reopened, rooms in out 
of the way localities being selected, and it 
has become so expensive, owing to the vig- 
ilance of the police, to conduct a gambling 
house in Chicago that very few men are 
willing to risk the loss of a part of their 
capital, or the whole of it, if they persist in 
violating the law. 

The first opportunity was taken advant- 
age of to close disreputable saloons. This 
occurred May 1, when the new license vear 
began. The police were directed to report 
all saloons carried on in an improper man- 
ner, and ninety keepers were refused 
licenses. A few of these were subsequently 
given licenses upon promising to confine 
themselves to their legitimate business, and 
in not a single instance was revocation 
necessary for misconduct. The application 
of seven persons not ''of good character" 
were rejected, and the licenses of fourteen 
keepers revoked for violations of the law. 
Four of the latter proved mitigating circum- 
stances, and the licenses were restored. In 
these cases also no complaints have been 
made. The saloons of Chicago today are 
conducted in a more orderly manner, and 
there is a more general observance of the 
regulating ordinances than for many years 
past. 

The appropriation for the year was $1,- 
366,331.75, and the expenditures were Sl,- 
305,562.07. 

The total number of arrests was 46,505, 
against 44,261 the previous year. The num- 
ber charged with drunkeness and disorderly 
conduct was 27,632, an increase of 1,465. Of 
the accused 155 were under ten years of age, 
against 191 in 1886— a decrease of twenty 
per cent; but the number between ten and 
twenty was 7,384, against 6,650; an increase 
of ten per cent. 

The appended table shows the number of 
arrests for the offenses specified: 



1887. 1886. 

Burglary 884 652 

Assaults 1,261 1,004 

Forgery 124 29

Selling lottery tickets 39

The excess of arrests for being an inmate 
of a gambling house is thus accounted for, 



April 9,]

[1888. 



Tn January, February and March, prior to 
the municipal election, owing to com- 
})lainls, raids were more frequent than 
usual, and 112 inmates were arrested. 
After my inauguration, and up to the time 
the orders were issued to close the gam- 
bling houses, 215 arrests had been made. 
From July 1 to December 31, the number 
was 702, the majority being found in rooms 
in the rear of saloons, or in "clubs," some of 
which had been incorporated in the hope 
that the law could be thus evaded. Had 
the police exliibited as much activity in this 
direction in 1886 as they have since April, 
1887, there would have been a decrease in 
the number of arrests for gambling. 

The police justices fined 23,858, and held 
1,657 for trial in the Criminal Court, 
against 1,599 in 1886. The amount of fines 
imposed was $259,249, against $202,063 the 
preceding year — an increase of $57,186. 

The value of the property reported stolen, 
as estimated by the owners, was $160,631.51, 
against $181,003.84 the previous year; but 
$45,415.15 of the former amount was re- 
ported between January 1 and April 18, so 
only $115,216.36 is to be credited to the suc- 
ceeding eight mouths and twelve days. The 
per cent., of stolen property recovered dur- 
ing the year was 45, against 30 in 1886. In 
addition the department recovered and 
restored to the owners, including horses 
and vehicles reported lost or stolen, pro- 
perty valued at $117,568.61, against $101,- 
541.27. 

The number of dlarm boxes in use De- 
cember 31, 1887, was 473, an increase of 
twenty-five. The wagons responded to 
29,075 alarms, against 27,068 in 1886; made 
20,610 arrests, against 18,958; and, in addi- 
tion, took to places of safety a large num- 
ber of sick, injured, and demented persons, 
and lost children found on the streets. 

During the year 23,405 lodgers were ac- 
commodated at the station houses, against 
91,084 the previous year, 54,940 in 1885, and 
25,141 in 1884. The falling off is gratifying, 
as it shows there are many less homeless 
wanderers in the city than for several years. 

The accommodations for the department 
at the City Hall were not satisfactory, and 
arrangements have been made, with the 
sanction of the Council, to occupy the greater 
portion of the second floor of the rotunda, 
which is to be fitted up at an expense of 
$20,000. 

FIKE DEPARTMENT. 

The appropriation for the Fire Depart- 
ment was $845,665.48, and the expenditures 
were $826,047.74. The apparatus consisted 
of forty-seven steamers, forty-three hose 
carts, fourteen chemicals, fourteen hook 
and ladder trucks, one stand pipe, and two 
fire boats, equivalent to thirty steamers. 
The force was composed of 558 men. Dur- 
ing the year forty-three were promoted, 
three reduced to an inferior position for 
cause, twenty-nine resigned, twenty-one 
were striken from the applicants for cause, 
and three at their Qwn request; and ninety- 
three were made regular members. The 



maintenance of discipline is shown by the 
forfeiture of 203 days pay for violations of 
the rules, and the dismissal of twenty-six 
men under charges. The companies re- 
sponded to 2,643 calls, an excess of 781 over 
1886. 

There were 1,853 fires, an increase of 310, 
involving an estimated loss of $1,798,900, 
which is larger by $206,800 than that in the 
previous year. This, however, is not extra- 
ordinary, 1887 being remarkable for the 
great loss by fire everywhere, the first-class 
department of Chicago keeping the per- 
centage of increased loss below that of any 
other large city in the country. 

BUILDING DEPARTMENT. 

Permits were issued for the erection of 
4,833 buildings, with a frontage of 115,506 
feet, or twenty-one and four-fifths miles, at 
an estimated cost of $19,778,100. The num- 
ber erected in 1886 was 4,651, with a front- 
age of 113,144 feet or twenty-one and two- 
tenth miles. 

COLLECTION DEPARTMENT. 

The City Collector received $584,536.84 on 
special assessments, $2,248,063.24 from 
licenses; an increase of $191,541.48 over 1886, 
$40,789.96 of which was paid under protest 
by the wholesale liquor dealers; $22,106.50 
from building permits, and $1,124 from cer- 
tificates of inspection; total $2,800,830.58, 
against $2,625,830.58; an increase of $175,- 
626.16. The cost of collection in 1886 was 
about seven-tenth of one per cent, and last 
year six-tenths of one per cent. 

PUBLIC LIBRARY. 

The Public Library continues to grow. 
During the year it became necessary to 
have more room, and the whole of the 
fourth floor of the City Hall, with the ex- 
ception of the Council Chamber and another 
room, is now occupied for its purposes. 
With this other room, which contains 3,100 
square feet, the directors believe the wants 
of the library would be met for some years. 
The number of volumes at the end of the 
year was 129,129, and increase of 11,353 over 
1886, and the number of enrolled borrowers 
29,228. There were taken out for home use 
626,825 books; a daily average circulation of 
2,263, which was an increase of eleven per 
cent. The appropriation and receipts were 
$86,485.72, and the expenditures $70,916.77, 
there being to the credit of the fund June 1, 
$85,410.21. The Board has transferred $40,- 
000 to the Department of Public Works for 
fitting up its rooms. 

HOUSE OF CORRECTION. 

The number of prisoners received at the 
House of Correction was 9,468, an increase 
of 1,944 over the preceding year. In 1886 
847 were released by the Mayor. Last year 
the number was 583, but of these 340 were 
pardoned prior to the commencement of 
my term, leaving only 243 to be credited to 
me for eight months. 



April 9,1

[1888. 



TSTearly one-fourth of the prisoners were 
committed on a fine of $5.00 and under. 
There were 789 in confinement December 
31, 1887, an increase of eighty-four. Of the 
delinquents, 471 were under 16 years of 
age, thirty-three more tlian in 1886. The 
Superintendent says that a large number of 
them were expert petty thieves, and should 
have been sent to the State Reform School 
rather than to the House of Correction, and 
that others needed the correctional discip- 
line of an Industrial Home. The labor 
performed by the prisoners was similar to 
that in the previous year, the public ac- 
count system being followed in the brick- 
yard and at all institution work. The 
average earnings per day were much less 
than under the contract system, but the re- 
ceipts from labor and other sources, $66,- 
473.95, exceeded the expectations of the in- 
spectors. The expenditures, including 
labor and material for the new building, 
were $127,096.75, the Council having ap- 
propriated $125,000 for the structure, and 
provided for its completion this year. The 
excellent sanitary condition of the prison is 
shown by the fact that, though the daily 
average of prisoners was 732, the deaths 
numbered only fifteen for the year. Mr. 
Charles E. Felton, a faithful and capable 
officer, and one of the best prison managers 
in the United States, was reappointed 
superintendent for four years. 

CONCLTISION. 

To the heads of the different departments 
I am indebted for the fullest co-operation

npon it is proposed to locate such dram shop. 
For the purpose of construing this ordinance 
a residence block is hereby defined to mean 
that portion of a block fronting on the

buildings are used for business purposes; 
but where any such applicant owns, rents,

room shall on Sundays be provided with 
blinds, shutters or curtains so as to obstruct 
the view from such streets into such room. 

Sec. 3. This ordinance shall be in force 
from and after its passage." 

Aid. CuUerton moved to amend the 
amendment by striking out all after the 
enacting clause down to the word "Pro- 
vided,'^ in the fifty-third line, and inserting 
in lieu thereof the following: 

"Section 1. That Section 1850, Article 
53, of Chapter 15, of the Munici])al Code, as 
amended, be and the same is hereby amend- 
ed so as to read as follows: 

Section 1850. The Mayor of the City of 
Chicago shall from time to time grant 
licenses for the keeping of dram shops 
within the City of Chicago, to any person 
who shall apply to him, in writing, upon 
said person furnishing sufficient evidence 
to satisfy him that he or she is a person of 
good character, and a proper person to re- 
ceive a license. The application tor any 
license under this orilinance shall state 
specifically where the dram shop is to be 
located and kept; provided, that no license 
to keep a dram shop, not already located, 
shall be granted to any person to keep such 
a dram shop within two hundred feet of 
either side of the main entrance of any 



building -vyhich is exclusively used for a 
church, synagogue, pu])lic or parochial 
school, ])rovi(ling such school has an aver- 
age daily attendance of fifty bona Jide 
students for the last school month prior • 
to th(? date of said application. Provided, 
further, that after the 30th day of April 
18S9, no license shall be granted to any per- 
son to keep a dram shop within one hun- 
dred feet of either side of tlie main entrance 
of any building used exclusively for a 
church, synagogu(i, public or parochial

age daily attendance of not less than fifty 
hona fide students for the last school month 
prior to the date of said application. And; 
provided, further, that after A])ril 30, 1«90, 
no license shall be granted to any person to 
keep a dram shop within two hundred feet 
of either side of the main entrance of any 
building used exclusively for a church, 
synagogue, public or parochial school, pro- 
viding such school has an average daily 
attendence of not less than fifty bona fide 
students for the last school month prior to 
the date of said application." 

Aid. Harris presented the following as a 
substitute for the whole- 
Amend Section 1, by striking out all 
that part of said section, commencing with 
the w^ords "or any other school" in the sixth 
line from the top of page 62, of Council pro- 
ceedings and ending with the words "date 
of said application" in the thirty-sixth line 
of same page. 

The Chair ruled that the matter presented 
by Aid. Harris w^as in the nature of an 
amendment, and not a substitute, and 
therefore out of order, as amendments have 
been exhausted. 

After debate, Aid. Clarke called for the 
previous question, and the call was sus- 
tained. 

The question first being on the amend- 
ment ot Aid. Cullerton, it was lost by yeas 
and nays as follows: 

Weber, Bartels, CuUerton, Wall- 
ner, Badenoch, Campbell, Horner — 7. 

Nays — Dixon, Whelan, Appleton, Ham-

Hage, Reich, Ernst, Burineister, Burke (22(1 
ward), McCorniick, O'Brien, Manierre,

The question then being on the amend- 
ment of Aid. Harris, it was agreed to by 
yeas and nays as follows:

Aid. Dixon moved to fnrther amend the 
ordinance by adding after the word "li- 
cense" in the thirteenth line the words 
"and the place to be licensed is a proper 
place to keep a dram shop." 



POINT OF ORDEK. 

Aid. Weber raised the point that the pre- 
vious question was in operation, and conse- 
quently an amendment at this time was out 
of order. 

The Chair decided the point well 
taken. 

The question then being on the passage 
of the ordinance as amended, it was agreed 
to by yeas and nays as follows: 

Yeas — Whelan, Appleton, Oehmen, Em-

CALL. 

The Clerk read the following call for the 
meeting: 

City op Chicago, ) 
June 1, 1888, ) 

To the City Clerk: 

You are hereby notified that a special 
meeting of the City Council is hereby called 
for the second day of June, 1888, at the hour 
of 2 p. m., to take appropriate steps relative 



to the death of ex-Alderman Henry F. 
Sheridan, 

Edwakd p. Burke, 
James T. Appleton, 
George Emmerick, 
Thos. C. Clarke, 
A^fsoisr Gorton, 
Alex. White, 
C. A. Monear. 

Aid. Burke {6th ward), moved that the 
call be placed on file. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Burke (6th ward), presented the 
following resolution, and moved its adop- 
tion. 

Resolved, That the City Council of the 
Chicago, learns with sorrow of the death of 
the Hon. Henry F. Sheridan, ex-Alderman 
for the Fifth Ward, who departed this life 
on Thursday, May 31. 

Mr. Sheridan served six years as a mem- 
ber of this body. His record in the City 
Council was that of an honorable man, a 
useful, progressive, public-spirited ofificer, 
and a kind-hearted, courteous associate. 

The City Council of Chicago hereby re- 
cords its profound regret at the loss of so 
useful a citizen, and it tenders the sincere

[1888. 



sympcatliy of its members to the family of 
their late associate. 

The City Clerk is hereby directed to for- 
ward a suitably engrossed copy of this re- 
solution to the family of the deceased. 

The resolution was unanimously adopted 
by a rising vote. 

Aid. Weber moved that the members of 
the City Council attend the funeral in a 
body. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Burke, (^th ward), moved that a 
committee of three be appointed to make 
arrangements for the funeral. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Clarke—This is an occasion which 
brings us together once in a while to record 
our sympathies with the families of those 
who have passed away, and to show our re- 
spect to the memory of a member who has 
been with us for a number of years, and 
who has departed this life. Aid. Sheridan, 
as we all know, was a member of this 
Council for six years. His record as a 
member of this council was one which did 
credit to himself, which did honor to the 
constituency whom he served, and it seems 



to me both proper and fitting that those 
who served with him at that time, should 
lend their voice at this time. There is but 
little to say on an occasion of this kind. It 
is simply to express our sympathy for the 
family of the deceased member, and to say 
that in his acts as a member of the Council, 
we uphold him— that he tried to do his duty 
to the best of his ability to the citizens of 
Chicago, as well as the constituency whom 
he served. As a member of this Council 1 
knew him— knew him here for nearly six 
years— and found him always to be a cour- 
teous, upright, honorable gentleman, and, 
while this is an occasion of sadness, at the 
same time, 1 with others, will be pleased to 
pay any fitting respect to his memory. 

The Mayor appointed as the Committee 
to make arrangements for the funeral. 
Aldermen E. P. Burke, Ernst and Bartels. 



ADJOtJENMENT. 

Aid. Manierre moved that the Council do 
now adjourn. 

The motion prevailed, and the Council 
stood adjourned.

His Honor the Mayor submitted the fol- 
lowing veto message: 

City of Chicago, ) 

Mayor's Office, y 

June 4, 1888. ) 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen: I return herewith with- 
out approval, the ordinance passed May 28, 
1888, amending Section 1850, Article 58 of 
Chapter 15, of the Municipal Code, for the 
reason that 1 am advised by the Law De- 
partment that the reference to saloons "not 
already located," is special legislation. The 
same objection holds as to the other amend- 
atory ordinances that have been before the 
Council. 1 therefore submit an ordinance 
amending Section 1850, which is not open 
to this objection, and ask that it be passed. 
This ordinance does not refer to saloons al- 
ready located, and it is the opinion of the 
Law Department that they cannot be 
reached this year, since licenses have al- 
ready been issued. If it contained a refer- 
ence to saloons that might be located this 
year the legislation would be special, inas- 
much as it would not apply to all saloons; 
hence, I recommend the passage of an 
order requesting the Mayor not to issue a 
license to a saloon located within the limits 
designated in the accompanying ordinance. 
Eespectfully submitted, 

John A, Roche, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Manierre moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in 
the veto was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Manierre moved that the ordinance 
be passed, the veto of his Honor the Mayor, 
to the contrary notwithstanding. 

Aid. Harris moved that the subject mat- 
ter l)e referred tu tUe Conpnittee on Lic(in- 



A\(\. Hamline moved that the same 
b(! referred to the Comndtteeon Judiciary. 

Aid. Maniern; withdr(;w his motion to 
l^ass the ordinancii, the veto to the contrary 
notwithstanding. 

Aid. Manierre moved that the ordinance 
submitted with the veto message, be sub- 
. stituted for the reconsidered ordinance. 

The motion was lost by yeas and nays 
as follows: 

Yeas — Dixon. Hamline, Wetherell, Gor- 
ton, Hammer, Clarke, Love, Bartels, CuU- 
erton, Nohe, Badenoch, Pond, White, Camp-

Aid. Clarke moved that the ordininance 
and the resolution submitted by the Mayor 
be referred to the Committee on Judiciary. 

Aid. Burmeister moved that the same be 
laid over and published, and made the 
special order tor the next regular meeting 
at 8 o'clock. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the ordinance: 

Be it ordained by the City Council of the
